The 1910 Detroit College Tigers football team was an American football team that represented Detroit College (later renamed the University of Detroit) as an independent during the 1910 college football season. In its third and final season under head coach George A. Kelly, the team compiled a 3–2 record, but was outscored by its opponents by a combined total of 67 to 38.[1] End Herman J. Keller was the team captain.[2][3]

The team opened the season with back-to-back losses Michigan Agricultural College (later renamed Michigan State University) and Olivet College, and ended the season with three victories over Hillsdale College, Adrian College, and Michigan State Normal School (later renamed Eastern Michigan University).

At a banquet for the football team held on December 12, coach George Kelly announced that he would not serve as the school's football coach in 1911.[4]
